You are correct - there is a bug from FW 156 which records incorrect EXIF data (focal length), hope it will be repaired soon (FW 161 bug is still there).

The images you show cannot be compared because second them is unsharp (probably hand shake). However when in PRO mode (10MPix and no RAW) camera always uses 3x optical - same as in regular mode. I tried it right now - there i no difference in PRO 10MPix 3x zoom compared to standard 3x mode.

maybe that was a firmware fix.

it definitely did NOT use telephoto in 3x mode, when I was in pro mode. and other poeple have posted elsewhere that this is what the camera did for them also.
